Fork-tailed Woodnymph (Thalurania furcata)
The Fork-tailed Woodnymph is found east of the Andes from north east Venezuela to norther Argentina but is missing from the extreme south of Brazil.
Nymphs: In May, host-seeking nymphs wait on vegetation near the ground for a small mammal or bird to approach. The nymph will then latch on to its host and feed for 4 or 5 days, engorging with blood and swelling to many times its original size.

Nymphs must get their own food after they hatch.

Nymphs are given no parental care; hatchling roaches are left to fend for themselves. The nymph grows by molting and it goes through about 13 molts before it reaches the adult form.

The nymphs feed by sucking the sap from the roots of the tree with their feeding tubes. Cicada nymphs can live for up to seven years underground, moulting (shedding their skin)as they grow because their skin does not stretch.
Cicada nymphs burrow underground and feed on sap from plant roots. The length of time they spend in this subterranean existence varies from 2 to 17 years, depending on the species.

Once a cicada nymph hatches, it drops to the ground, immediately burrowing into the soil, using its specially adapted front legs for the excavation.

When young cicada nymphs hatch from their eggs, they dig themselves into the ground to suck the liquids of plant roots. They spend several early life stages in these underground burrows before surfacing as adults.

The ootheca will be drawn back in and kept inside the body for at least 60 days, at which time 15-40 cockroach nymphs will emerge. Nymphs are ¼ to ½ inch long and flat, looking much like sow bugs in the beginning.

The species name callidryas is derived from the greek words kallos, meaning beautiful, and dryas meaning tree nymph hence the ever appropriate name: the beautiful tree nymph.
Female gives birth to 30-60 watermelon seed shaped nymphs. Nymphs mature in 5-6 months. They will molt about six times before they reach maturity. Their life span can be up to three years.
Life starts for the praying mantis usually in the early morning in spring when nymphs (a juvenile praying mantis) struggle their way out of their egg cases.

The ootheca will be kept inside the body for at least 60 days, at which time 15-40 cockroach babies, called nymphs, will emerge. Nymphs are ¼ to ½ inch long and flat. Nymphs stay with their mother for about 6 months after hatching.
Lubber nymphs are completely different in colour than the adults. The nymph (immature) is black with yellow stripes and the front legs and sides of its head are red. Lubbers have short simple antennae and chewing mouth parts.
Summer foods include aquatic succulents such as pond lilies (NUPHAR, NYMPHAEA), bur-reed (SPARGANIUM), duckweeds (LEMNA, etc.), pondweeds (POTAMOGETON), algae, and fleshy rootstocks of many other species, ...
Youngest juveniles are insectivorous: prey water-bugs, dragonfly nymphs, beetles, spiders, mole crickets, frogs, snails. (Cott 1975)
Older juveniles eat freshwater crabs, snails, toads, frogs, turtles, small birds and rodents.
The next year, young mantises called nymphs come out of the top of the cluster and begin to eat. If there is not enough food, they will eat each other as well. The young mantis is very much like the adult--it does not start life as a caterpillar.
Many insects lay eggs, but female Madagascar hissing cockroaches create a cocoon-like egg case called an ootheca and carry the eggs (and neonatal nymphs) inside their bodies. They then bear up to 60 living young, called nymphs.
They are easily caught fishing nymphs, wet or dry flies, worms or salmon eggs. Will also take small spoons and spinners. The same techniques used to catch rainbow trout work very well on Apache trout.
Hummingbirds dappled by this gracious green include Emerald-bellied Puffleg, Emerald-bellied Woodnymph, and Emerald-chinned Hummingbird, beautiful birds every one.
The dragonfly eggs then hatch into nymphs. which is how most of the dragonfly's life is spent. The dragonfly nymphs live beneath the water's surface, using extendible jaws to catch other invertebrates or even vertebrates such as tadpoles and fish.

Larvae are eaten by predatory insects- predaceous diving beetles, their larvae, water boatman, dragonfly nymphs, water scorpions and giant water bugs- other Ambystoma larvae, as well as turtles (Kenney and Burne 2000).
Dragonflies may exist as larvae, or nymphs, from a few months up to five years, depending on the species. During this stage they live entirely under water, mostly in ponds, lakes and canals.

Nymph spiderlings are about the size of a pinhead when they hatch. The spiderlings will stay within the egg case until their first molt, which is usually about five to six days after they hatch.
The immature insects, known as nymphs, molt six times before reaching maturity at seven months. During molts, the casing splits down the middle of the back and the roach wiggles out of it.

The eggs hatch while they are still inside. The female gives birth to anywhere from 30 to 60 live nymphs, which will reach maturity in seven months. This species of cockroach can live two to five years.
It is thought that they may have specialized in eating the now-extinct Rocky Mountain grasshopper egg cases and emerging nymphs.
During the larval stages, generally lasting two to three years, the nymphs (aquatic larvae) pass through 11 to 12 larval stages before metamorphosing into dragonflies. Once they emerge as adults, they immediately begin the cycle again.
This sets the soil particles like a cement wall around the pod. Thus protected, the eggs remain until they hatch, the nymphs struggling to the surface where they eventually progress through a series of moults to the adult stage.
Females are larger than males and after mating they lay 10-20 cream-colored, oval eggs on a piece of flotsam, such as a piece of floating wood. The eggs hatch into nymphs that molt through five stages before becoming adults.
Land locked char are typically smaller, and found in lakes in the northern part of the Northwest Territories. A brightly coloured fly, or dead-drifting a small bright or natural coloured nymph usually catches their attention.
On June 9, 2002 a bird was found in the marshes in the center of the Main Ring. July 23, 2006, produced the first breeding record for the species when an adult was seen feeding two chicks with crayfish and dragonfly nymphs at Lake Logo.
